Access Data, a Broadridge Financial Solutions (BR) company and leader in enterprise data management, analysis and reporting for the financial services industry, and Charles Schwab (SCHW) have launched Schwab Asset Intelligence, a portal providing mutual funds with unprecedented access to fund asset and sales information across Schwab's RIA, retail, retirement and trust channels.
This collaboration between two financial services leaders utilizes cutting edge analytics and insightful reporting to benefit the mutual fund industry. Through its unique offering, the portal goes beyond standard data delivery to help funds understand how assets are generated and which advisors are driving the most sales, providing reliable intelligence to drive business.
"Broadridge's proprietary technology and services solve a growing problem in the financial industry - the lack of timely data transparency and insight. With this partnership and portal, and by leveraging the experience of Access Data, we're creating a level of visibility that hasn't previously existed by simplifying the exchange of information between mutual fund families and distributors. In essence, eligible mutual fund providers will be able to harness the power of big data to uncover new business opportunities and drive growth," said Doug Hanson, Vice President overseeing third party mutual fund platforms at Charles Schwab.
"With advanced analytics and insightful reporting, Schwab's mutual fund providers will have access to fund asset and flow information that they didn't have before. This new level of information will help them better understand their market share, how they rank against other funds, and where they're gaining more traction and adding new clients - enabling partners to ultimately raise more assets under management. In short, we're providing a gateway that will redefine the industry and transform data into valuable insight to help drive more business," said Dan Cwenar, President, Access Data.
